A classic zombie gets cremated
Even the most dedicated horror fan might admit that, when he or she heard that Bill Hinzman had died on Monday, a degree of headscratching took place.
Mr Hinzman played the first zombie viewers encounter in George Romero’s seminal classic Night of the Living Dead. Yes, he was the chap who lumbers towards the unfortunate couple in the graveyard.
His daughter, Heidi Hinzman, a successful assistant director, explained that he had been cremated and quipped: “He always joked if he got buried he would come back.”
